IPL 2019: WATCH – Prithvi Shaw smacks four successive boundaries in one over off Tim Southee (RCB vs DC)

Posted On / /

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) succumbed to their sixth straight loss in the IPL 2019 as Delhi Capitals (DC) defeated them in their backyard by four wickets. Virat Kohli & Co. struggled with the bat and ambled along to a below-par total of 149 which DC, despite the customary huffing and puffing towards the end, overcame with more than an over to spare.

Tim Southee’s misery continues

Southee’s first game of the season unravelled quickly the other night when Kolkata Knight Riders’ all-rounder Andre Russell went on the rampage with a 29-run over. Apparently, the Kiwi speedster still hadn’t recovered from the shock.

On Sunday, he was at the receiving end of another onslaught, this time by Delhi opener Prithvi Shaw.

In the third over of the second innings, Southee kept erring in line and length and Shaw took full advantage with four successive boundaries followed by a leg-bye for a fifth four in the over.

The first ball was flicked through mid-wicket and the second one pulled through square leg. With width offered on the next two balls, Shaw smashed Southee for two more fours through the off-side before a leg-side delivery went off for four leg-byes. After a good first over, Southee gave away 20 runs in his second over much to RCB’s dismay.
